Seems a mortal lock that the Rams will pick up exactly where they left off in 2017, especially on offense, and especailly where quarterback Jared Goff is concerned.

With a career of 11 up and 11 down, most feel that Goff takes that next big leap forward. That seems absolutely logical given that this is year two in Sean McVay’s offense, running back Todd Gurley is still his starting running back, and the Rams went out and got him another deep threat in wide receiver Brandin Cooks.

There is no denying the third year quarterback from Cal who went 0-7 to begin his NFL career, looks to be on the fast track to bigger and better under McVay. The Rams are looking at Goff as his extension on the field this season.

One thing most experts concede is that Los Angeles won’t sneak up on anyone this year. The Rams have been splashy this offseason and will wear a large target on their collective back in 2018.

But for that next step, Goff will needs to show growth. He’ll need to be the kind of factor on offense that Gurley already is. The Rams will look to him to be as such, and going backwards is not part of that equation.
